Firefighters battle a blaze - at their own firehouse in Harlem.

A blaze broke out inside a Manhattanville firehouse Friday, injuring eight firefighters, including a chief.

The two-alarm fire, which began around 8 p.m., sparked on a landing between the second and third floors of Engine 80 and Ladder 23 on W. 139th St., an FDNY spokesman said.

The fire was extinguished by 25 units, including some firefighters from Engine 80, the spokesman said.

The blaze was being investigated last night, but an FDNY spokesman said it did not appear to be suspicious.

Three firefighters were being treated for minor injuries at New York-Presbyterian Hospital Columbia and two others were rushed to St. Luke's Hospital, the spokesman said.
